Invite a cornucopia of entertaining purple martins to your bird garden with this abundant pack of 8 Wild Bird Lover's Single Purple Martin Gourds. In centuries past, dried, hollowed gourds were often used as housing for migratory purple martins, and the extended neck and rounded body of each roost wonderfully evokes this shape. This full set of handy gourds is the ideal solution for creating a vibrant martin locale in your bird garden. The units sport alternating raised and impressed sections throughout their bodies for fantastic texture and allure, and a 2.125" diameter entry hole provides safe passage for lovely martins. This leads to a 6.25" diameter, interior nesting area in each gourd where birds can safely deposit their precious eggs away from predators. A drainage hole on each slightly flattened base encourages a dry and unspoiled compartment, and the beige coloration keeps the colony at a cool temperature throughout the summer months. Suspend these gourds using their integrated top loop, place them either below an existing house or on a gourd rack system (not included) for multiple showcase options to meet your personal décor needs. These durable, plastic gourds lend you a reliable, easy to maintain option that will help give martins safe dwelling while beautifying your outdoor space throughout extended use. Create a sizable locale for purple martins in need of shelter with this time-tested and handy pack of 8 Single Purple Martin Gourds.
